How can we improve the Education offerings?

Lock pages

After distributing a page to students, I would like to mark and review their work and stop them from editing . Onenote team suggested to copy page to my folder! I have a class of 20, I cannot move all their doc 1 by 1 to the teacher folder or make a copy … it would be a waste of time and space- Teachers should have a padlock - so a Homework/page is locked - Students cannot edit again!

        Lock pages is now avaiable in 'Review Student Work'. This is not good.
        Review student work is only any good if the work is done on a page that has the same title as every other page that the work is done on. In other words, the teacher must make the page and distribute it, or they must instruct the students to name the page precisely, otherwise each unique naming (this include capitalization and punctuation) will appear in the review panel at the top level, followed by the student name. In my experience, no class has ever mastered this- there's always a few who insist on doing it their own way. This makes using the feature worse that opening each student's section one at a time. It would be far better to include the lock pages feature in 'manage notebooks' alongside collaboration space permissions.

        In order to make this my go to space for my students, I would need this function in order to use as assessments

        We have a number of teachers who would otherwise use Class Notebook but won't because students can change anything a teacher writes

        This would be fabulous, just what I need to ensure rigour for controlled assessments. The sooner the better please!

        I would like the ability not to just lock pages, but to lock an entire TAB. We do portfolios and would like to stop printing paper copies. If I could lock the TAB, students couldn't change their work and I could save a whole lot of trees!!

        Please help me save trees and be able to grade locked work online.

        I agree with this completely. My suggestion to OneNote would be simply in Manage Notebooks or the Class Notebook tab for 'restrict student access' and 'restrict student editing'. Two options. The first being so that a staff member can review or mark the assessment material and then in-lock once ALL students' work has been marked. The latter, being so that once it has been marked (summatively), there can be no more editing. This would help teachers in terms of exam boards and awarding body evidence.

        This is the exact comment I was coming to make so it's lovely to see others are thinking the same. I want students to be able to see my marking and review their work but not be able to "edit" the work. Please please please work on this.
